Yellow Tulips painting by Stephanie Fuller

Yellow Tulips
December 2019

Oil On Canvas
48 x 72 x 1.5 in (121.92 x 182.88 x 3.81 cm)
POA
Location: UK

DESCRIPTION/NOTES
I have been creating still lives in multiple mediums for the past 3 decades.
Tulips have had a fascination for me because of their historical references and their beauty. The fact that they continue to grow when cut and placed in water gives them a life and unusual place in a domestic environment. Are they living or dead. If they are still growing where do they fit into our very black and white idea of life and death. Could it be that they inhabit a space in between.

The meaning of the colour yellow can be warmth, happiness, cheerfulness, increased mental activity, increased muscle energy. The colour yellow helps activate the memory, encourage communication, enhance vision, build confidence, and stimulate the nervous system.

If yellow is overused, it can have a disturbing effect. For example, too much yellow causes loss of focus and makes it hard to complete a task. Too little yellow on the other hand, causes feelings of isolation and fear, insecurity, and low self-esteem. A lack of yellow can cause one to become rigid, cunning, possessive, or defensive.

Yellow flowers encourage bees into the garden and increase the chances of pollination early in the season.

Bees or no bees the importance of adding yellow into your life cannot be underestimated. Making this the perfect painting for a happy life and great styling.

Cherry Tree Walk painting by Stephanie Fuller

Cherry Tree Walk
December 2019
Oil On Canvas
48 x 72 x 1.5 in (121.92 x 182.88 x 3.81 cm)
POA
Location: UK

DESCRIPTION/NOTES
As I age more living things have personality to me. In our world of over population and Climate Change the flora and fauna around us cry out to be seen. To wake us up from our greed and negligence.

Most of my oeuvre over three decades, has talked about the fragility of life often through flowers, both sculpted and painted.
Creating works about life and mortality within a well travelled art subject like flower paintings allows for a new fresher look.

The subject has different inspirations and aspirations for each age.

Sunflower painting by Stephanie Fuller
Stephanie Fuller
Sunflower
March 2018
Oil On Canvas
60 x 48 x 1.5 in (152.4 x 121.92 x 3.81 cm)
POA
Location: UK

DESCRIPTION/NOTES
When she transitioned to the brush it was an event, not just because her sculpture had become rarer still, but because it was a reshaping of her vision into a new medium. The landscapes and natural Australian forms of her past now took their shape in pigment and movements of color. Following on from the post-impressionists and the fine art tradition pursuing man and woman's search for beauty.

These new flower paintings, not unlike Bacon, are almost figurative pieces, the flower represented in its singularity as having a personality. When Van Gogh painted his flowers he was said to be painting at the manic rate of around three paintings a day, in all states of blossoming and wilting, on the edge of death, grasping onto the preciousness of life. The way these two artists see the world comes out in this same kind of paradox, this obsession with life and death fuels them to master their craft. For Burns these flowers have a life beyond a pleasing decorative object, but a part of this ecosystem, and more like something fundamental to our planet. That is both fragile, necessary and constantly changing.

March 2018
Oil On Canvas

SOLD

DESCRIPTION/NOTES
I have been sculpting and painting flowers for over 20 years. This latest series of flower paintings was inspired by memory.
Many years ago I built a sculpture garden that was open to the public a couple of times a year. I grew lilies and loved the way something so majestic can come from a small bulb that lies dormant most of the year.
This painting has been written about recently.

If yellow is overused, it can have a disturbing effect. For example, it is a proven fact that babies cry more in rooms painted yellow. Too much yellow causes loss of focus and makes it hard to complete a task. Too much yellow also can cause people to become critical and demanding.

Blossoms painting by Stephanie Fuller

Cherry Blossoms
November 2019
Oil On Canvas
40 x 40 x 1.5 in (101.6 x 101.6 x 3.81 cm)
POA
Location: UK

DESCRIPTION/NOTES
I have always loved Van Gogh's painting of Almond Blossoms which I first saw in Amsterdam in 1990. The white of the blossoms, the blue of the background and the angular branches were the inspiration for this paintings. Sparked by this actual branch of blossoms I saw by a lake. Instantly I was reminded of Van Gogh's painting which I had so admired.

As I age living things have more personality to me. In our world of over population and Climate Change the flora and fauna around us cry out to be seen. To wake us up from our negligence.
Most of my oeuvre over three decades, has talked about the fragility of life often through flowers, both sculpted and painted.
Creating works about life and mortality within a well travelled art subject like flower paintings allows me to take a new fresher look. The subject has different inspirations and aspirations for each age.

I hope my Blossoms bring you peace and a feeling of tranquility in these uncertain times.

Waterlilies painting by Stephanie Fuller
Stephanie Fuller

Pond Reflections
2019
Oil on Canvas
30 x 30 in
SOLD


DESCRIPTION/NOTES
We all love Monet, who doesn't. But I hope that my paintings of waterlilies are a tribute to the master. Art offers us a method to communicate what we may not necessarily fully understand or know how to express. The idea is not to copy or re-create the master but to re-invent.

Evening Waterlilies
2019
Oil on Canvas
69 x 71 in
SOLD


DESCRIPTION/NOTES

Waterlilies are obviously Monet's domain. I have visited Monet's garden in Giverny, France four times in my life. The first when I was 20 years old in the early 80s, then every decade since.

My first exhibition of painting of Monet's garden was in 2006. Flowers have always been one of my main subjects as has water so waterlilies on a pond are an obvious subject for me to paint.

We all love Monet, who doesn't. But I hope that my paintings of waterlilies are a tribute to the master. Art offers us a method to communicate what we may not necessarily fully understand or know how to express. The idea is not to copy or re-create the master but to re-invent.
